Riding out with Jamie

On a recent catch up with Jamie, we got an exclusive insight into what it’s like riding out with Jamie.

Currently Jamie is kept busy with young horses which he is preparing for the Irish point-to-point season.

Jamie keeps in shape by riding out every day, swimming, running and simply eating right.

Jamie is currently regularly riding out for William Codd, Gordon Elliot and Dennis Murphy.

He prefers the Champion brand of riding hats which he finds to be the most comfortable, rarely wears gloves riding out or racing and is still enjoying riding out in his Old Mill race exercise saddle which he has had for almost five years.

The saddle is still in impeccable condition and Jamie doesn’t hesitate to admit they are the best on the market in his experience.

Jamie finds Paul Carberry riding out breeches to be the most comfortable and has found Jomiluti waterproofs to be the best. You can find all of the above equipment on our website here.
